Have you ever tried your hand at ranking all of World of Warcraft’s expansions from worst to best? Sure you have, because everyone’s done that at one point or another. MMO blog Amateur Azerothian took a stab at it himself, and I guarantee you that you won’t agree with 100% of it. But it’s interesting! “Cataclysm brought a lot to Azeroth, more than most expansions and that’s why it’s ranked higher than the others. It’s not like it wasn’t without it’s faults. They were there,” he wrote. “But I feel as though the expansion had enough positives that outweighed the numerous shortcomings.” Cataclysm at number three? Hey, that kind of perspective is why it’s always a wild experience to read MMO blogs — not everyone agrees with you, and that’s OK! Contains Moderate Peril: The pros and cons of complex lore in LOTRO “Over the past twelve years Turbine and now Standing Stone Games have tapped … [Read more...] about Global Chat: Ranking World of Warcraft’s expansions

After about ten weeks on the PTR we finally 8.2 Rise of Azshara went live, and we’ve been able to take a far more comprehensive look into it. Though I’ve been participating the PTR the whole time there are a few things which surprised me in the live version (since everything wasn’t completely implemented before I stopped playing about a week before the patch). Let’s look at where 8.2 gets things right and where things are either a miss or just not quite right. There will be some spoilers because the story is a big part of this patch. Now that you’ve been warned let’s start with what’s right about 8.2. advertisement This first aspect which is right is the first storyline and that first cutscene which gets everyone into Nazjatar. I hadn’t seen it before launch, so all I knew was the Alliance is chasing the Horde ships who are headed out to the middle of the ocean because of reasons. Then Azshara does something which opens a … [Read more...] about World of Warcraft 8.2 is Here and It’s….OK?
Nothing says summertime quite like blowing one another into smitheroons in heavy armored vehicles! That’s what War Thunder‘s Operation S.U.M.M.E.R. 2018 event is offering players of the vehicular combat MMO, along with the ability to build themselves some sweet new tanks. Operation S.U.M.M.E.R. 2018 will allow players of War Thunder to craft themselves a Soviet T-34E tank or an IS-7 tank. Players will have to complete a number of tasks to get blueprints for each vehicle, and then get the parts required to craft components by taking part in battles at certain ranks. However, putting together the pieces needed for the tanks isn’t just a matter of automatically filling in a recipe. Players are being challenged to bring a little bit of know-how into the proceedings by sorting out which materials are actually required to craft the appropriate part. If you’re bad at this sort of thing, though, don’t worry; any combination of materials that result in an incorrect … [Read more...] about War Thunder Kicks Off Operation S.U.M.M.E.R. 2018

The news about Toys R Us closing is not shocking given the rapid slide over the last month or so… but still hits me fairly hard. The truth is I didn’t go to the store that often anymore because quite frankly it was inconvenient. I did however take the opportunity on a regular occasion to visit them while roaming around other towns. I’ve been to at least one Toys R Us in San Antonio for awhile while we were down there for Pax South, but in that case it was largely because it was beside a Container Store my wife wanted to go to. I think ultimately everyone stopped going to the store for their various reasons, and this is yet another step along the chain to the loss of brick and mortar retail as a whole. It does however make me nostalgic about the Toys R Us from my past. I found this image online, and decided to use it because more or less this represents the Toys R Us I remember from my childhood. The closest location for me was … [Read more...] about Toys R Us Kid
